...for example, in torah, one of the seven noachide laws was ...do not murder. it was enshrined in the ten commandments my moshe the first prophet , mentioned in koran as well as the five books that carry his name. And is it not written in the Koran...if yo kill, kill well...if you slaughter, slaughter well. This may sound ominous at first , but actually, after a moments reflection, of course they are both true.

all meat eaters slaughter or commision the slaughtering of animals for food, be it kosher, halal, or whatever. we all kill. we kill ourselves at work, by smoking, or failing to observe any alloted day off from work. we kill vegetables , once again to eat. we kill time, by staring at eastenders , brookside or coronation street in england on the tv. BUT WE DO NOT MURDER. we as different as we are the same.

my name is grant newman. i am a poet and a philosopher. i write poetry pamphlets for peace for the charity www.theparentscircle.com ... love moves forward
